Gone from the earth so swiftly; Just like a flower in bloom; So young, so fair, so loving; Yet called away so soon. We'll meet her some glad morning; Resting by waters fair; She is waiting for our coming; In the upper garden there.

Minako-San was my hair stylist for 10 + years...I followed her as she moved salons and finally established her very own space! She was talented and always made me feel fabulous! She would always try and teach me how to recreate the same looks at home but I could never do what she did for me. Recently she started cutting my daughter’s hair too and making her feel like a big special girl at the salon like mama! We were looking forward to visiting soon for her “back to school” cut and are beyond devestated that we won’t be back at her cheerful red salon. I will treasure all of my memories of Minako-San - she will be missed deeply.

Our deepest condolences to Eric and Minako-san’s family. We are deeply saddened by her passing. We adopted our beloved cat Tobi from Minako-san and are forever grateful to her. We will miss her warm smile, truly wonderful humor and kindness. We have known her for years and will miss her dearly. We are glad to have known her.

Yoko, Jeff and Tobi.

Minako and her colleague Mina (Hana) have been taking care of my hair for almost ten years (since 2009). I went to them when they were back at Ability and as they carried forward to their own salon in Seal Beach. I know that Minako has been operating the salon for quite some time on her own. This shows and extremely admirable quality in Minako - perseverance. While I don’t know what happened to Minako, I know she will be remembered by all her clients.

Personally, we would chat about life and my travels with my then girlfriend and now wife. Who knows, maybe if I had never gotten such a great stylish haircut, maybe my wife would have not even noticed me! Minako is one of the nicest and most dedicated persons I know.

I am sad she is no longer with us, but I am glad to know that she can now rest after working so hard. Rest In Peace.
